AIR FORCE LEGAL FACILITIES
|Publication Date:||28 October 2015|
This standard facility prototype design criteria was developed to assist Air Force planners to prepare and validate DD Form 1391 requirements and to assist architect and engineering (A-E) design professionals with approved project-specific design requirements. It is a source of basic programming and functional information for legal facilities. This standard is consistent with Air Force Corporate Facility Standards (AFCFS) and Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC). This standard, in conjunction with the AFCFS, is intended to define Air Force expectations for project programming and A-E design decisions.
The standard facility prototype design program defines consistent facility requirements across the Air Force enterprise to expedite delivery of a facility. This standard was designed in compliance with AFMAN 32-1084. The objective is to deliver appropriately sized, flexible, cost-optimized, durable, and quality-designed facilities on a life cycle basis to support the Air Force mission.
The mission of the Air Force Judge Advocate General's Corps (AFJAGC) is to deliver professional, candid, independent counsel and full-spectrum legal capabilities to the command and the warfighter. In so doing, the AFJAGC ensures the lawful accomplishment of the Air Force mission, the discipline of the force, the defense of Air Force resources, and the preservation of prerogatives for Air Force leaders. In addition, the AFJAGC represents accused Airmen, supports victims' rights, and assists Airmen and their families in resolving personal legal problems. Legal canons of ethics drive confidentiality for attorney-client discussions, which in turn necessitate private offices with higher than normal sound transmission ratings. Additionally, legal facilities should evince a professional image, reflective of the rule of law.
